1913 Nazzaro Tipo 2

The 1913 Nazzaro Tipo 2 was an early Italian automobile produced by the automaker Nazzaro. It was a sports car that featured a 4-cylinder engine with a displacement of 4.5 liters, capable of producing around 60 horsepower. The engine was mounted longitudinally in the front of the car and powered the rear wheels through a 4-speed manual gearbox.

The Tipo 2 had a top speed of around 120 km/h (75 mph), which was impressive for its time. It was also known for its handling and braking capabilities, which made it a popular choice for racing. The car was successful in competition, winning the 1913 Targa Florio and the 1914 French Grand Prix.

The Nazzaro company was founded in 1901 by Fiat engineer Nicola Romeo Nazzaro, and produced cars until 1929. The Tipo 2 was one of the company's most notable models and helped establish Nazzaro as a serious competitor in the world of motorsports.
